I have just learnt of a brand new stamp release from Oxford Impressions.
Suzanne had designed the most fabulous stamp set, Mystical Mermaids available from Oxford Impressions site, Austen Gallery. In fact I have only just learnt about the release.
As you can see, this set is so much more than mermaids, with beautiful boats and take a look at the whale, oh my word, it is firing up the imagination already! This set would work as a stand alone but I could also imagine it mixing and matching with The Deep and also By The Sea sets also from Oxford Impressions.I hope you don’t mind me sharing this information with you.

I received notification that Part II of “We Asked The Artists” has now been posted over at Stampington & co’s Blog, Somerset Place.
The question that was posed was regarding the creative space. Thankfully there was no request for photographs! If that had been the case I would still be hanging my head in shame at the state of my wee crafty space, it is teeny tiny and impossible to control. A space so small was never meant for storing all the supplies I need to hand, including DT/GD stamps for Oxford Impressions, Darkroom Door, Crafty Individuals, Redlead Paperworks, PaperArtsy and also all the goodies I receive from That’s Crafty (other stamps have unfortunately had to go into storage in the loft as I literally have no space in this area). The only space left is for the stool I perch upon! It is little wonder my actual working area is reduced to the size of a postage stamp! Well, not quite but not far from that, possibly 6″x6″!!! No, I am most certainly not taking requests for photographs of this space lol.
Anyway, if you would like to read my response to the question posed then you can read mine along with those from the amazing artists whose company I am in, HERE. I have no business having my name alongside such artists, true artists who teach, have published books, their own stamp/product line, really I have no idea how or why I was ever invited to be amongst such a collection of artists, continue to pinch myself!
BTW, the card displayed alongside my answer is a Darkroom Door creation, one which is published in the latest issue of The Stampers’ Sampler and which I will be sharing along with the others from the same card collection, very soon.
Have a lovely week and many thanks for your visit and past visits. I do have some scheduled blog posts scattered here and there throughout the week.

A very quick scheduled post to share today featuring one card.
This card is published in the Summer issue of Somerset Studio Gallery (I am sure it was submitted to Take Ten). It was made as a Valentine’s Day card but it could also be an anniversary card. The stamps and image are from Darkroom Door, the image is from Love Letters Montage sheet.
This card actually came about when I received the Floral Texture Stamp. With a pink chalk ink I stamped the Texture Stamp onto the top and bottom edges of a white scallop edged cardbase to create a decorative border, the Texture Stamps are fabulous. Layering one of the Love Letters images onto shabbily painted corrugated cardboard along with scraps of floral fabric and raspberry velvet ribbon, topped with the stamped word, embrace which is one of the many, many words/sentiments to be found on the Love Word Block stamp – incredibly useful stamps.So there we have it, a quick card and a quick post. Another time I will share with you art journal style panels which were also published in this issue of Somerset Studio Gallery.
Many thanks for your visit.
